Our purpose

Endeavour House is a centre for social change organisations in Canberra, and is owned and managed by Ethical Property.

Tenants are a mix of organisations involved in campaigning, community service, business services, research and policy development, and local retailers.

Endeavour House is also home to The Level, which provides deskspaces, lockable storage and meeting rooms for social change organisations visiting Canberra.

Our history

Endeavour House was originally constructed in the 1950s as a two-storey retail precinct around a large glass atrium. Over the next 20-30 years it was extended to four storeys and largely converted to offices.

In the 1980’s, Endeavour House was the nerve centre for the design team during the design and construction of new Parliament House. It seems fitting that a building which was once a hub for those designing the home of the Federal Parliament should now be a centre for organisations designing a better Australia.
